A few comments for FBers:
(1) This means an FBer will be unable to target 10.7 and any new APIs introduced in 10.7. Some Lion features ( such as window resizing from any window edge ) will be there for your apps without any additional coding. My shareware apps work without any code changes( not counting my own coding error in a search callback ).

(2) An apt description. A lot of FB depends on QuickDraw, so don’t write this off as handled by a switch to CG.

(3) Eric’s comments ( link given in Robert’s post ) are worth the read
